Films released after 1963 need no renewal.

Forum: feature_films Subject: Re: Quick questions on PD films pre-1978

Basically you can search for any copyright office record 1978
onwards online. This means registrations and renewals. Because
movies had to be renewed in their 28th year after publication,
renewals are available for films back to 1950.

In the early 90s the Berne implimentation act took away the need
to renew. So only items made before 1 Jan 1964 need to be
renewed.

Up until 1978 films required a copyright notice. No copyright
notice put the film instantly in the public domain.

If a film released between 1 Jan 1978 and 1 March 1989 had not
copyright notice it could be registered with 5 years of
publication to get copyright protection.

I know ... but the problem is that with most of my copies the end credits are missing or cut short .. and some of the start credits seem to be incomplete.
I was hoping that some one knows a list or catalogue where such titles with no/wrong or incomplete copyright notice are listed

As much as this pains me, I would wager that "The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz" (which I would kill to have a copy of) is still under copyright. If for no other reason than the author of the book, is also the author of the sceenplay (Mordechai Richler, considered one of Canada's greatest political writers, authors and a brilliant satirist, won Best Oscar for this screenplay. He's also a great children's author, if you've read/seen any of the Jacob Two-Two books/cartoons).

If no one else owns the rights to this, his estate almost certainly does, and they've tended to be pretty tight with their copyright management (just watch a Jacob Two-Two episode or two).

And yeah. I know I didn't look it up, as I simply have no clue how to navigate that mess. So, a) I would be very interested to know who own's the rights..if anyone; and b) crossing my fingers, as I'd *really* like to see this (I'm a big fan of Richler's work. The original book is amazing!)
